14/06/2019 - Berkshire Local Industrial Strategy Framework Document Consultation ref: 2940    Recommendations Approved

The UK government set out a requirement for Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEP’s) to create Local Industrial Strategies (LIS) in the Industrial Strategy White Paper which was published in November 2017.

The Thames Valley Berkshire LEP has a responsibility to shape a Local Industrial Strategy for Berkshire, the BLIS. The LEP has worked with numerous partners on this since early 2018 and has now published a BLIS Framework Document.

The Document sets out five priorities and poses a number of questions to ensure that it meets the needs of local stakeholders. Its publication marks a key milestone in the process of developing the BLIS, ahead of ‘co-design’ with government, as all Local Industrial Strategies must eventually be co-owned to ensure they contribute to the national Industrial Strategy published in late 2017. This tasked all 38 LEPs in the country with leading the development of a Local Industrial Strategy for their respective areas, to raise productivity and ensure that local economic assets contribute even more to the national economy.

Bracknell Forest Council is a key stakeholder for the LEP and has helped shape the Framework document. As a key stakeholder we will now be responding to the consultation, collecting the views of key stakeholders within the organisation.

 

The Executive Member will determine the Council’s response to the consultation.

Decision Maker: Executive Member for Economic Development & Regeneration

Decision published: 14/06/2019

Effective from: 22/06/2019

Decision:

The Executive Member for Economic Development & Regeneration agrees:

 

i.      the Council’s response to the consultation on the Berkshire Local Industrial Strategy  (BLIS)

 

ii.     the Council’s endorsement of the Framework Document

 

iii.    to submit the consultation response to the Thames Valley Berkshire LEP (TVBLEP) by 21st June 2019
